Ciro Immobile - 96 - TOTS
4.5
INSANE VALUE STRIKER
By ryanluvsye, 23-05-2020

I've come to a point this FIFA where I just find no joy in playing WL competitively anymore, so I sold most of my tradable players to try out different TOTS cards. The first one I picked up was this Immobile, who at first glance, looks like a faster version of HL Lewandowski. This review is based on using him with an Engine chem style because it's basically the only chem style that should be used on him.

PACE - Although he's not Adama or Daniel James type of fast, he is much faster than I first anticipated. He is fast enough to latch onto through balls before the defenders do, as well as make quick runs into open space.


SHOOTING - One. Of. The. Best. Finishers. In. The. Game. This guy simply doesn't miss. Across goal shots, near-post shots, even shots that you wouldn't even attempt go in. Truly a 99 finishing stat finisher. His shot power is like a bullet, and although I haven't tried his volleys yet, I would assume that they are godlike because of the 98 volleying stat.


DRIBBLING - Even with an engine he's not super-duper agile on the ball, but he can make sharp turns when needed which is pretty good for a 6ft1 height player. I think that's because of his 99 reactions, ball control and dribbling when given the engine. It's good enough to make him usable but not enough to allow him to weave through defenders I don't think.


PHYSICALITY - This guy is strong enough to stay on the ball as well as win it back from defenders. His stamina allows him to last all game plus extra time, and the combination of his jumping, height and heading accuracy might finally mean that you can score a header in this game!


PASSING - Yeah you're not gonna want to try to play make with this card. His short passing is good enough combined with his vision, but it's like he goes blind when trying to make a long pass.


DEFENDING - Pretty irrelevant for a striker so I wouldn't worry too much about it.


3* SM - The skill moves don't make him unusable at all, but there are certain situations with this card where a scoop turn would come in quite handy.

The Absolute Business
By Maweeturtleheed, 23-05-2020

I got Immobile in an untradeable pack so I have no skin in the game to talk up his price. All I can say is, he's the best striker I've used in Fifa20. For a direct comparison with a similarly built striker - I had 96 Lewandowski for a while and Immobile is on another level.


I've only played 5 games with him so far but he's scored three in each of them. The reason for sticking this review in so quickly is that Immobile is going cheap given just how good he is. Watch this space, he'll do a Carvajal and increase by 100/150k when people realise just how good he is, so snap him up cheap while you can, anything under 500k is a bargain for this guy.



Heading - I can finally put a cross into the box in Fifa20


Volleys - Bottom Corner every time


Speed - He's a big man in the middle so his acceleration is as important as having the speed to get into the box.


Physical - Unlike some strikers I've played with who have similar stats Immobile stands his ground and rarely gets bullied off the ball.



He's a sword, not a scalpel, there isn't a lot of subtlety to his game - if you're into rainbow flicks and intricate dribbling to score your goals - he might not be for you. If you want a giant pacey forward who bulldozes his way through - this is your guy.

The beast
By SamuGamer, 25-05-2020

I have been using him in the last weekend league and damn, he is a beast, if you are looking for a perfect finisher for your squad he is your way to go. I have played him with Giovinco, Baggio moments and Nakata moments behind and with the perfect assists he can really change your games. I started playing fifa again 2 months ago due to quarantine and he is the best striker i have used so far! Buy him asap guyssss!

POWERFUL SHOOTING BOOTS
By DirtySaffi, 31-05-2020

This card is exceptionally amazing, I packed him last week and even though he doesn't fit in my squad (PL), I still use him and he is a beast, Positioning, control, and Shooting out of the box is too good. By far one of the best Strikers I have played in Fifa, (haven't played with Mbappe or CR7 tho). I used to play with Immobile in Fifa 19 (89 TOTW) card, but this card is far far better with shooting traits almost 99.

Perfect striker to link with Costa, Dybala, and CR7 the Goat.

  • Shooting power
  • Out of the box shoot
  • Ball control
  • Dribbling Inside the Box
  • Volleys
  • Aggression
  • Free kick ability not so great
  • Play him as Target man as he is not good in Balance and long pass.
  • Not very impressive in winning aerial tackles.

The best ST in the game
By VB10187, 15-06-2020

This guy is the best striker in the game. He is not exactly meta however you cannot go wrong with him. I was disappointed when he came up in my G1 red picks however I chose him and I have been grateful ever since. His bullet-like shot power combined with his insane finishing mean that it always goes into the corner too fast for the keeper to react. If the keeper manages to react it goes through his hands due to the speed. His pace is very good. Obviously it is not on the level of Traore or Kent but it is more than enough. His heading combined with his height means that he does not miss headers. He scores every single one. His shots go in even when you would not expect them to. He is very cheap as well due to his low balance however when in game with an engine chem style you cannot really feel it. He can be clunky at times but it is made up for with all the positives of this card. I have him paired with Jamie Vardy TOTS who i got from the guaranteed packs and if you similarly pair him with a meta ST he works very well.

Good short passing for build up

His only con is his long passing. He cannot be used to set up a goal via long pass.
